Further information:

UpRoar People’s Ceilidh is a monthly folky fulcrum of creative celebration – it’s part concert, part singing workshop, part ceilidh dance, part fundraiser and part community feast – UpRoar is literally an all-singing-all-dancing community shindig!

‘It’s like a festival in an afternoon!’ – UpRoar People’s Ceilidh Participant

Each month, UpRoar welcomes a different special guest from the wide and wonderful world of progressive folk, and invites you to a matinee concert with our guest. This is followed by a singing workshop led by choral activist Kirsty Martin and then a few ceilidh dances – dancers of all abilities and penchants welcome! We then share a community feast together, while learning about a cause / organisation that is close to our guest’s heart. This month we will be collecting for Brighton Oasis Project.

In May we are taking part in the Fringe Festival and Brighton based folksters Bird in the Belly will be our special guests.

Praise for Bird in the Belly’s new album ‘After the City’ (2022)
“Bird In The Belly’s approach is eloquent, lovingly detailed & touched with a welcome dash of experimentalism. Judge After The City on its songs, its musicianship, its sheer ambition. Bird In The Belly are one of the most talented and unusual groups around, and here they have taken on a relatively obscure subject and made it accessible, gripping and mythical” – Thomas Blake, Folk Radio UK
